I love walking my dogs here. The views along with the sunsets and sunrises are beautiful. It is a peaceful place to enjoy a picnic with the kids or just watch the world go by

Accessible cycle ways and paths make this a great place for all to visit. Walk along the river or up the hill for more of a challenge. Beautiful views of the river and the city.
